In normal conditions your salary should be reviewed at least once a year. You know, the cost of living rises, your responsibilities increase, etc..
And maybe after several years of hard work and dedication to your company you've never got a raise.
Did you ask for it? And what happened?
Let me tell you that if your income has not increased, something goes wrong with your company.
Change what you need to change
Do always keep your sword sharpened, for you and your company. Mostly for you. Find the necessary training and progress.
Plan your work in advance, think and act wisely, correct all that should be corrected.
To find the good answers you need to meditate about the good questions.
If your work is routine, analyze what happens around you and learn.
You are not part of the robotic race that always works without questioning anything, running after the carrot as with the rats race.
If you have good ideas and no one listens to them and time proves you were right, maybe you should change and find a more receptive environment to work.
Raise your salary yourselfI've written a lot about working for yourself and I firmly believe on it. Having a personal project gives you inspiration, motivation and money.
After all, if you are your own boss you decide what will be your salary, eh?
And you'd be living a beautiful experience in your life that changes your present and surely your future.
It is the experience of being the creator of your life and your own source of income.
With a project B, while you have no choice but to continue with the project A of working for someone else, you'll be forming and preparing exactly for what you need.
Your project B will begin to bear fruit soon.
And your project B will be soon your project A.
If you're only earning 10 euros per month, this is a start, a seed and proof that you can make 100, or 1000, or 10,000 euros in the future.
In those 10, 50 or 100 euros per month, money comes directly from you, your ideas and the work you have done for yourself, something you're passionate about.
If you don’t get a raise, do not wait, do not despair, and raise your salary yourself.
Think and act like a manager, keep on going on, you have nothing to lose and everything to win.
What do you think?
